Dry Bulk shipping has been adversely affected by concerns regarding slower projections for global economic growth, falling commodity prices, major geopolitical challenges and the nervousness of the broader market. In this context, despite the fact that the BDI rose by 25% in Q3 2014, dry bulk stocks have declined on average by well over 30% in the last three months, also considerably more than the S&P 500 Index. The webinar will discuss current trends and developments in the Dry Bulk sector, as well as the sector's outlook for 2015 and beyond. It will address the following topics:

  • What are the reasons behind the current market performance
  • Is the sell-off of dry bulk stocks warranted?
  • What is the outlook for the near term and for 2015-2016
  • Comparison of current freight rates and asset values to their 10 - 15 year averages
  • Demand drivers
  • Supply situation with orderbook, delivery schedules, scrapping
  • Sector catalysts and sector outlook

The discussion will be sector focused and not company specific. The webinar is held for informational and educational purposes only and is not intended as investment advice or as advice of any kind.


The webinar will consist of a roundtable discussion with one moderator and three panelists who will address the current shipping environment and outlook for the dry bulk sector. The webinar will last for a total of one hour. 45 minutes will be allotted for the panel discussion, which will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. This webinar will be archived and available for replay upon registration.
